“Everybody’s been telling me what they think about me for the last few months,” Eminem says on "Fall." “Maybe it’s time I tell them what I think about them.” Just eight months after the vulnerable Revival, Eminem has heard the doubts about his relevance and issues a brutal rebuttal; those doubters might feel nervous upon listening to “The Ringer,” which is Em going through receipts over an ominous beat. (Prediction: “I can see why people like Lil Yachty, but not me, though” will break Rap Twitter.) Kamikaze feels like 2002 again—Eminem blowing off steam and blowing up the high road, rapping angry, yet in total control. On “Not Alike,” he teams up with his old right-hand man Royce da 5'9" to clown Auto-Tuned rappers over a trap beat reminiscent of BlocBoy JB’s Drake-featuring hit “Look Alive.” “Greatest” is a prime Shady flex, brushing off disses like crumbs (Die Antwoord gets roasted). As usual, relationships aren’t spared his rage; “Nice Guy” is a salty he said/she said featuring rising R&B star Jessie Reyez. During his freestyle cypher at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards, Eminem drew a line in the sand to weed out Trump supporters from his fan base. Kamikaze extends the challenge to his non-believers: Which side are you on?
